Does anyone have experience with Geovisions? Specifically their live-in English tutoring placements? or anything of the sort. They have programs all over that arrange for live-in english tutoring in exchange for room and board with a family, business-folk, sometimes teachers, etc.

Any experiences?

I would be interested in hearing feedback as well, although it seems their placement fees are rather high.
I've come across a few threads here mentioning hostels where you can teach English in exchange for room in board, and it doesn't cost anything.

Sherry Ott of www.ottsworld.com recently volunteered with Geovisions in Jordan and Lebanon. She has a few blog posts about her experiences.

I am looking at their Russia program. I actually think their fees are incredibly reasonable, especially compared to a lot of other volunteer programs that charge a couple thousand dollars for just a few weeks.
